"Bonjour, comment allez-vous?" or "Bonjour, comment vas-tu?"


Explanation:
This sounds very american to me. I don't think that you need to translate "today" (aujourd'hui) when asking that.In a phone conversation, that's what you would say to open the conversation. In French, the "aujourd'hui" would be quite artificial.
